Is it possible to open outlook on another page with a message set up and send email already set?

Hello. We are trying set up a feature in our app where a user can select a button in the app and it will open up outlook in a new window with a new message ready an with the "send" already set to a certain email.

I know I can use Launch() to open up outlook but is it possible to have it automatically have a new message ready and the send already filled with an email?

Just want to confirm if anyone has tried this and if it is even possible.

Hi @Mgodby 

 

You can use this code 

 

Launch(
    "mailto:" & ComboBox1.Selected.Mail,
    {
        subject: TextInput1.Text,
        cc: ComboBox1.Selected.Mail,
        body: RichTextEditor1.HtmlText
    }
)

Hi @Mgodby

 

We can use Power automate to send emails when some conditions are met. In this case, you have a more tracking system and are easy to maintain.

Thank you so much. This works very well. I notice it opens your default mail app when you launch, is there a way to do this in the browser to make it open outlook in the browser? Thank you.

Glad to help, I never tried that but I will check that.
